're a 501 c 3 and you're afraid of the irs, go ahead and defy the irs. >> we saw people stand up in texas. >> we must challenge today's post-modern culture. >> pro-abortion activists chanted "hail satan." >> it's going to kill, potentially destroy the base of the country. >> you saw it from the last election. they didn't want to vote for president obama but at least he went out and talked to him, at least he went out and spoke about them. we didn't do that. we marginalized them. >> senator santorum wants the president to go out and talk to working people. what is he going to say? why a gop opposes an increase in the minimum wage. if you're a woman, forget about making your own decisions on just about anything and they want to take away your health care. let's face it, this is the future of the republican party. it's no different from the past. the grand old party is exactly that, old, white and pre-dom nanly male. no matter how hard they try to say they're trying to reach out to minorities, they can't escape their base which means they probably can't win a national election. joining me no
, louis gohmert, republican, and joaquin castro, democrat. both from texas. setting aside donald trump, it appears there's an intensity of activity in iowa, particularly on the republican side. we saw claire mccaskill out for hillary this weekend. it's in part because it's so wide open in the gop. >> both parties will be nominating someone who's not president. that opens it up a lot. the democratic field, they have a weak bench, and be careful what they wish for to clear the field and have no competition. the last time almost uncontested nomination was '56, with stevenson. he probably would have been beaten anyway, but he was beaten. competition is good for parties. the republican party is going to get their fill of it. >> no question, but there does not appear to be that much competition yet, understandably, with hillary clinton out there find of freezing the field. >> i don't think so. martin o'malley made noise he's interested, joe biden, and kristen gillibrand, elizabeth warren, a lot of buzz, and governor cuomo from new york. a lot of talk. and let me not forgot joe biden. he will

average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge
